Think that's the one my old mate Graham plays bass in. Will be seeing it in Liverpool.

First 'biggie' I saw in Nottm was Ray Charles, around 1962.

Through 60s I saw so many I've lost count.

Catfan. I saw Long John Baldry on one of the Boat Clubs. He was an early UK blues singer and worked with others including Alexis Korner's Blues Inc.

Seen him many times. An absolutely brilliant singer and a giant in the world of British Blues. The one in the early to mid 60's that every blues singer aspired to be.

Got many of his CD's too.

Me & a mate were returning from a day at Skeg on the train & I think it was ROT or Bingham where he boarded the same.

We had a brief chat & he said he was on his way to a club gig in Nottm.

Absolutely smashing bloke too.

Here you go Catfan.

One from the first LP I ever bought. Long John sang this and a couple of others on this classic album. The other vocals were by Cyril Davis who died shortly after from leukaemia.
